The best singers draw from experience. And that’s true for young as well as well-seasoned artists.
Though still in their mid teens, sisters Kelli and Kayla Iutzwig, a.k.a. Wild Fire, prove this point at show after show, in song after song. Their self-titled, debut EP "Wild Fire" confirms that their future is bright. Their 2022 album "In Between" confirms that this future is now, with a soundtrack that’s infectious, fun and impossible to resist. Wild Fire is currently transitioning into the pop genre. Their music infuses elements of pop, rock and modern country, resulting in a very unique sound. In addition, Wild Fire has had multiple songs picked up by Spotify editorial playlists, including "What If We Never Met," which has spent 16 weeks and counting on multiple Spotify editorial playlists since it's release.
More than that, they are already conveying their stories through music in ways that inspire with audiences their age and beyond. Singly and in harmony, they channel the optimism of youth, sprinkle in the spice of early insight into life’s lessons, super-charge it with jolt of pop and the sass of country.
No wonder Linda Wilson, President of the Texas Country Music Association, describes them as “one of the best up-and-coming young artist duos out there.” And following their live appearance on “Great Day Houston” in March 2019, KHOU-TV proclaimed, “Wild Fire are setting the music world ablaze.”
This fire was kindled in Houston, where their parents spotted Kelli’s and Kayla’s talent when they were barely old enough to sing along to Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Carrie Underwood, Miley Cyrus and other radio favorites. When each girl was 6 years old she began studying with celebrated vocal coach Pamela Moore. Both also learned to play guitar, with Kelli doubling on piano. They took to songwriting quickly and naturally and learned how to transfer their energy and creativity to numerous live theater and dance productions.
After launching Wild Fire in 2016, they’ve wowed audiences at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, NRG Stadium, NRG Arena, Kemah Boardwalk, Firehouse Saloon, White Oak Music Hall, University of Houston Stadium, among many other venues. They reached the semifinals of Houston Rodeo’s Rodeo Rockstar competition in 2016 — and soared to the finals in ’17. That same year they made the final round of the Huntsville Superstar singing competition in Huntsville, Texas. Then, in 2018, they took first prize as Female Vocalist of the Year in the Young Adult category at the Josie Music Awards, held at the Celebrity Theater inside Dolly Parton’s Dollywood theme park. In 2019, Wild Fire had several of their original songs placed in NBC's "Very Cavallari" reality TV show.
With over 240,000 followers across socials, Wild Fire will widen their impact beyond music in 2022.
